11th & 12th Grades: A Levels or High 太阳城网址 Diploma?
在Brillantmont, our students can choose between a British A Level programme or a High 太阳城网址 Diploma programme from 11th Grade onwards
Our long tradition and experience of teaching 一个水平
Brillantmont is 140 years old and for nearly 80 of those, we have taught A Levels. We are one of the only schools in the Lake Geneva area which teaches British 一个水平 and we have years of experience. 许多太阳城网址提供IB课程 (International Baccalauréat), however we feel strongly that IB is not the best programme for everyone. 澳门太阳城手机网址认为 A 关卡是一个很好的选择，因为:
一个水平 offer students flexibility and choice.
In the IB, the programme is fixed and students have to 研究 a range of subjects, including those which they may not enjoy. 的水平, students get to choose three, four or even five subjects, which they can 研究 in 深度. They can focus on subjects they like and enjoy and not be pulled down by having to 研究 subjects they don't want to 研究.
一个水平 是世界公认的吗. 大学将指定分数 and the subjects required to enrol in their degree 项目. 一个水平 are so highly regarded that in the USA, good A Level grades will mean students get credit and can directly enter the 2nd year of 研究. The 深度 of 研究 and the autonomy that students take for their learning, prepare them for university 研究.
English Language, French, Spanish, German
Geography, History, Economics, Art and Design
A等级考试包括 两部分- AS和A2. AS + A2 = A级.
Students usually take the AS exams at the end of Grade 11 and continue to take the A2 exams at the end of Grade 12, though sometimes, a student may take their AS and A2 exams in the same session.
许多 人们喜欢 the IB because of the Service 学习 it offers. 然而,在 Brillantmont, students can get fully involved in Service 学习 and it is a choice, not something imposed upon them. 他们可以选择加入 栖息地 Humanity, which involves building a house for a family in need, or they can participate in the weekly Soup Kitchen in Lausanne, where our students volunteer and get involved with fundraising events throughout 这所太阳城网址. We are also involved in a project teaching refugees in Lausanne.
是的,一个水平 被世界各地的大学认可. Universities like A Levels because the 深度 of 研究 and the autonomy required means that they are well-prepared for university.

Can students enter Swiss universities with A Levels?
是的, because A Levels are recognised worldwide and highly regarded. 在瑞士,具体 subjects are required and French or German are needed depending on the location, so careful planning is crucial to ensure students make the 对主题的选择.
Brillantmont also offers the High 太阳城网址 Diploma - how does this work?
The High 太阳城网址 Diploma works on continual assessment for the High 太阳城网址 Years, Grades 9-12. Students must work hard all year to pass their year and earn a credit. A credit is given for a class which is successfully completed over the 学年. Brillantmont requires a certain number of credits to be able to graduate, in addition to other tests.
PSAT和SAT是基于美国的考试. 它们是必需的，以便 graduate from High 太阳城网址 and at Brillantmont, students are prepared for these tests, which are taken in school, because we are a test centre.
Does Brillantmont offer Advanced Placement (AP)?
Brillantmont does not specifically prepare AP, 但是在一些学科中, there is a degree of crossover with the content of AP and 一个水平 and with additional work undertaken by the student, it may be possible to take APs in certain subjects.
Which is best for my child - 一个水平 or the High 太阳城网址 Diploma?
这 question is discussed at the 招生 stage and depends partly on the student's academic profile to date but also their objectives with 关于未来的学习选择. 太阳城网址的一些学生参加了 combination of British A Level classes and SATs, graduating in both 项目.
100% of Brillantmont students continue to Higher Education. At the end of 12th Grade, if they successfully meet the academic requirements, our students graduate with either the High 太阳城网址 Graduation Diploma or British A Level examinations.
